The New Zealand Herald | In their words: The race that stopped a nation
How is it I can run the fifth fastest time in history and finish fourth in a race?
I stood there in total amazement. I walked off the track and someone called to me, ‚loser‘. I thought, ’shit, come on, I ran the fifth fastest time in history. I know I finished fourth but was only three steps away from winning. How can I be a loser?‘ In fourth place you don’t get any prizes. I experienced that again in ’76. Fourth is not a good place. — Rod Dixon
